The Dubs have been working out players (some projected higher than our picks) and apparently Meyers has released a board of prospects to other teams that we'd pay to get if available.

Despite our draft position, looks like we could make some fireworks anyways...

According to reports, Dubs are interested in Oakland native, Cam Oliver (PF) and are looking for a pick in the 31-45 range. If Cam is available at 40, there's a good chance that the Warriors will acquire that pick as word has it New Orleans wants to move out of the pick. Boston at 37 is another possibility.

Cam Oliver, PF, Nevada

Oliver most likely will be a second round selection on Thursday night, with many projecting him in the late 30s to 40s, but the more you watch him, the more he appears to warrant first round consideration. At 6-8, he does not have ideal height for a power forward, but he has an excellent 7-1 wingspan and a 8-10.5 standing reach which is and inch and a half bigger than 6'10 Blake Griffin's. His 39.5” max-vertical leap, gives him some intriguing potential as a rim protector and as a pick and roll switch man. He not only shows off that incredible leaping ability in combine athleticism testing, he's proven to be one of the most aggressive and explosive dunkers on the college level over the past two seasons. He is also a versatile offensive player, showing the ability to knock down 3 point shots (38.4% and 4.9 attempts per game), put the ball on the floor, and operate out of the mid-post area. If he can demonstrate that his motor is not a legitimate concern and be placed in a good situation, he could be one of the biggest steals in an otherwise loaded draft class. While OG Anunoby has received considerably more hype for his length, athleticism and potential, even drawing an invite to the green room, Oliver possesses similar if not better potential. Oliver is a year older and has a one inch disadvantage in standing reach to Anunoby (6'10.5 to 6'11.5), but his two years in college were decidedly more productive. According to current projections online, Oliver may end up being taken 15-20 spots lower, but he could easily end up the better pro.

Cam Oliver: 20.9 years old, 31 mpg, 16 ppg, 9 rpg, 2.6 blk, 46 fg% (lowered by 3 pt attempts), 38% 3p-66made,70% ft, 7' 1.25" wingspan

Just another example of how teams don't know how to draft. Jordan Bell was right in front of all these teams and he was picked at 38! Lamazing!

Curry,
Klay,
Durant, McCaw
Green, Bell

Now we have to figure out who is staying for next year. We might be able to get Vince Carter or Randolph. Not sure what will happen to Ian Clark, Livtingstaun, Iguodala, Pachulia, West, and McGee.

Apparently the FO paid the Bulls 3.5 million to get the 2nd round pick. That's awfully high.

Wonder where this player will fit in. He was attained likely in case either or both Pachulia or McGee leave. Forget his name but last year's 1st rounder was a Center and he was injured all season I think. Could end up being a valuable pick but otherwise a bit of a waste.
